Not cool.

Whoever decided to make a belt or necklace or whatever back in the day better be glad that the gold gilding had worn off when I dug it! It was green and crusty before I brass-brushed it. Yes, there are differences to a gold dollar, but not enough to notice in the first few seconds! You, whomever you are, are on notice!

(I learned about these Victorian decorative belts after finding a New York Excelsior button that had strange attachment points... after giving it to the property owner, I had to go back and tell him it actually wasn't a war bring-back from his great grandfather......)

This is why you should always keep an automatic defribillator on hand in the field.

I agree with the defib.
That would have put me in fits!
Nice find!
